London Fashion Week

Spring/Summer 2014

(image from vogue.co.uk):

The queen of innovative print design and technique

Mary Katrantzou

presented an inspired collection based on the shoe.

The patterns are collage inspired –

an assemblage of shoe parts

laces

eyelets

soles

buckles

zippers

tips

subtly positioned to highlight body parts.

For interpretive appreciation, the collection

can be fractioned into three sections:

shoe elements …  shoe graphics …  florals

and the shoes worn by the runway models anchored the look.

The Collection

Part 1:   the shoe

and its component parts

Provocative.   Inventive.   Hard.   Edgy.
